One-Stitch Adult Cardigan

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

12 sc and 16 rows = 4 in [10 cm].

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

One-Stitch Adult Cardigan Reviewed by Davida McMullen on 2014-03-08 **
This takes more than 6 balls of yarn. It takes at least 10 balls, and that's if you want it to be a short cardigan. It make it a nice length, 15 balls are really needed for the whole thing. Otherwise, it is a very simple pattern and even a beginner can make this.
